Shabazz Napier recently unfollowed LeBron James on Twitter. LeBron, who was Napier’s biggest fan while the former UConn star was leading the Huskies to a championship, was the first person Shabazz followed when he joined Twitter last month. We find it pretty funny that Napier no longer follows King James now that he has returned to Cleveland, but Napier insists he didn’t unfollow LeBron himself.
“The whole thing about that is I don’t know how to work Twitter yet and I’m not on my Twitter, so I don’t know where that came from,” Napier said after a Summer League game this week, via ESPN.com. I don’t pay attention to it. It gets brought to me by family members, but I don’t pay any attention to it. I just think it’s how it is. Media wants something to bite on.”
In Napier’s defense, he is new to Twitter. He has only sent five tweets, with his first one coming less than a month ago. And he even admitted in that first tweet that Twitter would take him some time to get used to.
Finally on Twitter, but it may take me some time to get use to!

It is very possible that Napier has someone run his account for him and that person chose to unfollow LeBron and delete a previous tweet Shabazz sent to him. That doesn’t mean the whole situation isn’t entertaining.
